Rock on the Range will be celebrating its tenth anniversary this spring. Festival organizers previously confirmed that a slew of artists including the newly reunited At the Drive-In, Rob Zombie, A Day to Remember, Bring Me the Horizon, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Lamb of God, Disturbed, and more would be making their way to the MAPFRE Stadium in Columbus, OH in late May. Now, festival organizers have unveiled another huge band heading to the three-day music festival.
On Monday (Feb. 8), Rock on the Range organizers revealed that the Deftones have been added to their list. The California band recently revealed that their new album, Gore, would be released on April 8, a little over a month before they take the stage at Rock on the Range. “Rock On The Range has always been a show we enjoy playing, and to be a part of the tenth year is particularly exciting for us, especially with a new album in tow. See you all in May,” Deftones frontman Chino Moreno said.
In addition to the Deftones joining the lineup, it was also revealed that on Saturday (May 21), Rock on the Range will include a live version of VH1 Classic’s program, That Metal Show. The live show will feature interviews with various bands on the lineup, a “Stump The Trunk” segment, and That Metal Show commentary by hosts Eddie Trunk, Don Jamieson, and Jim Florentine.
Tickets for the Ohio-based festival are currently available on the festival’s website, but it is recommended that those who are digging the lineup so far get their tickets as soon as possible. Beginning Monday, Feb. 22, the prices of all tickets will increase. Weekend general admission prices will increase to $229.50 (plus fees) while weekend stadium general admission tickets will go up to $159.50 (plus fees).
